Loved this house. We had three family groups staying and there was more than enough room for all of us. All bedrooms had en suites which was perfect. Fantastic kitchen with both aga and gas cooker/oven. Plenty of seating and space in lounge which had a large conservatory attached. Underfloor heating was a great bonus as weather wasn't too good....

We enjoyed every single day at the Piggeries. It was the perfect launching spot for our day trips to the Lakes, Lytham St Anne, and Manchester -a tour of Old Trafford for all the boys (big and small). And of course the beautiful Inn at Whitewell. And then returning after our adventures it was luxurious to pop a pizza in...

About the neighbourhood
Whilst our surrounding countryside is beautiful, there are many places that our guests wish to visit. A traditional place is the Lake District, usually Windermere and Ambleside, which can be reached in less than an hour from here. Lots of pretty villages and towns, amazing views, but also very busy

Blackpool is a very famous seaside town just a 35 minute drive from here. The Pleasure Beach now has a Nickleodeon theme for younger children. The Pepsi Max roller coaster and other thrilling rides. An ice rink and shows. The Tower is worth a visit, with the ballroom that held the finals of Strictly Come Dancing plus an amazing circus. Sandcastles is a tropical indoor pool on the promenade. The Illuminations in autumn on the promenade with tram and horse carriage rides.
